1. A quite interesting carbonated soft-drink. It tastes great the first time you have it, or if you don't drink it too frequently, but its' flavor seems to fade and become un-noticeable if you drink it on a regular basis. It is better than Coke and Pepsi, and all the other popular soft-drinks, and often causes one to belch loudly, which is reason enough to drink it.

I wasn't experienced in selecting the best beverage when I was twelve, but thankfully, my Uncle Brian (aka "Stone Cold") came swiftly to me and informed me of my error. I had just recently been dipped in the "caffine" side of the pool of beverages about 2 years previously because in Missouri not everyone carries root beer like they did in Utah, so I either had to convert to the "dark side" or just go for the unattractive sodas like Sprite, which made me sick at the time. Anywho, having the cheap mom that I have, I got Dr. Thunder (the cheap nasty crap version of Dr. Pepper from Walmart) while I was staying in California with my grandparents (along with my mom and brother) for a few weeks. I don't recall the specific details, but my Uncle Stone Cold told me these powerful, vital words of beverage wisdom.
"Dr. Pepper is the nectar of the Gods. Dr. Thunder is the nectar of the Walmart employees."
To this day, I still remember those words. I have tried several knock-off brands of the heavenly nectar (ie: Dr. Thunder, Mr. Pibb, Pibb Extra, and the worst one ever was Dr. Hyvee--gross.) I glady inform all those confused drinkers that they really aren't drinking the best soda out there, that they're being cheated of deliciousness.
Sadly, I am now called obsessed with Dr. Pepper. I think that's just a whee bit extreme.
I don't know who you're talking about.... :)
